OK, where do I start? First off, Draw...as for those saying Thornton "punked" out and was affraid, please check out his career fight card, I dont think you can say he is affraid of anyone, he has faught them all...as for this bout, both landed a few decent ones, hence the draw. We might as well face it, Thornton might be the face of the enforcer going forward, meaning he can play, and fight when called upon, against anyone...He is a believer in the code, and a big believer in "what goes around, comes around"...He is aware of how dangerous Orr is, who isnt? Dont think any inforcer in the league wants to be on the other end of a blind punch, and Thornton knows this as well as anyone....As odd as it was to see, he did the right thing. Bet this fight is front and center at the GM meetings, regarding fighting. Good job ST...May seem homerish, but its not, I like Orr also, just the truth.
I'm not particularly a fan of either of these guys, but Orr's cult following needs to recognize when it's a draw or a loss. Edge to Thornton and until you become certified mind readers as to Thornton's motives, hush up.
